Effective Redis for PHP Developers


Comments are closed.

Fantastic talk that showed the room that Redis can be used for so much more than just a "dumb" key-value store. Matt's a knowledgeable, sharp speaker and his examples were simple yet relatable for the audience.

Good coverage of Redis and its abilities!

Great talk by Matthew, nice comprehensible use cases backed up with simple code examples. Redis really does more than I thought.

He did a very good job explaining several good use cases for Redis. I particularly appreciated how clear and understandable his example code was.

Solid talk and overview of Redis. Very well covered and presented with examples. Would liked to have seen examples of pubsub but that's probably a different talk.

I'm so glad this wasn't just a basic Redis talk - very informative, showing the advanced stuff with good, clear examples. Very nice talk, well presented!

This was useful to me. I needed to know the how, when, why, of the more advanced Redis usage. Matthew's talk showed how things fit together. I asked Matthew about pub/sub before the talk started, and he said it was outside the talk, so I was not disappointed. I'm fine with "out of scope" topics! After the talk, he referred me to a subject matter expert at the vendor table. Can't say fairer than that!

Great talk by Matthew -- this could easily be extended to a tutorial.

This talk covered the basics of Redis and then moved on to some advanced usage scenarios. I really liked a lot of the tips and tricks that were covered.

Loved it. I've been curious about Redis for quite some time and after this presentation I feel like I have a pretty good understanding and know how to get started. I was able to picture several ways I can start using Redis today, if I can find the time.

Covered the core concepts of Redis fine. The book example somehow didn't connect to me. Would be interesting to hear comparison to other caching backends (memcached, APC, etc...) One thing to keep in mind is that there are probably many who have used Redis but don't even really know that much about it. With Magento it can be used as caching backend and all you need to do is update some configuration to point it that way (I think you can do the same in Laravel). Then you only think about it when it falls down (hits maxmemory or something like that).

Did a really good job of showing how redis can be used for much more than just key-value storage. Excellent mix of tips and real usage.
